I have been long suffering from what i thought was vaginal/yeast/bacteria infection.. My itch is unbearable sometimes however I do not have much discharge.

I have gone to a GP last year and she said its not yeast infection but some kind of allergy or reaction..something like eczema (wh I dont have on other parts of my body)..the meds she gave helped temporarily with the itch but I lost my medicine when I was moving house.. and my dreadful itch returned

Hence I decided to see a gynae and she did a Pap Smear, vaginal swab and also put Gynofort which didn't really do much..

I got my lab results for the swab test and Pap smear and both are NORMAL.

I know it's supposed to be good news but now that it's confirmed not a vaginal/yeast/bacteria infection, I do not know how to get rid of this itch which has been torturing me for so long!!

I have never heard of allergy/skin reaction/eczema at the vagina! Has anyone??

By the way, I have tried cultured drinks, yogurt, Canestan, no douching, no soap..and I ensure and maintain goof hygiene always!

Could the lab test be wrong? Shld I go for another swab test? Shld I see a dermatologist? Do they actually check the skin at the vagina?

Any contribution will be much appreciated!! Thanks!!!
